I am deeply passionate about my community and want people to be as proud of and engaged in Port Moody as I am.

I want a city that is caring and inclusive!

That means tackling tough issues like affordability. As we strive to find the perfect solution, we need a culture in the City that is always looking for innovative ways to help youth, seniors and families remain part of our community.

It means dealing with emerging issues like social inclusion and finding ways to foster a sense of connection and community, through programs, through built form and a through a vibrant urban culture that honours our lands and waters.

Today we face important challenges –

  • financial sustainability,
  • housing affordability,
  • ensuring that seniors, youth and growing families can keep calling Port Moody home,
  • working to relieve traffic congestion,
  • building cross cultural relationships,
  • climate change and its effects on our natural environment and livability,
  • ensuring for the provision of much needed parks and greenspace.

Now, more than ever, Port Moody needs a Mayor who puts people and community first as we confront these issues.

I am that person!
